EOS Bodies - For Stills / Viewing and deleting photos on 5D MKIII
« on: May 08, 2013, 04:15:42 PM »
I recently got mark III and I have few questions...

I configured Zoom button to zoom in to point where focus was acquired. If I take few pictures in a row and press zoom button while last picture is still displayed on screen, I cannot scroll through other pictures with quick dial. Is there some way around this? I don't want to press preview button and then zoom button every time I want to quickly go through images I have just captured.

Second thing is that I have configured camera to record Raw files on CF card and Jpeg files to SD card.  When I delete any picture with delete button only Raw file gets deleted (or Jpeg if I set camera to preview Images from SD card). How can I quickly delete both images?

Canon General / Gear upgrade: 2 primes vs new body + 1 prime??

Hi guys and girls. I plan to upgrade my gear and as it usually goes I have no idea what to do :) After this upgrade I think that I won't be buying anything for a very long time so I need some advice.
Currently I have 24-70 f2.8L, 70-200 f2.8L IS II, 5d mark II and 3x Speedlite 600EX RT. I will be doing some weddings this summer as a second photographer and this is main reason for upgrade.
I was thinking of this two options:

- EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM + EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM
I need something wide...24-70 is great but sometimes (not too often) just not wide enough.
85mm F1.2 well you all know what this thing can do. This would be really helpful in dark churches. Some places don't allow flashes and I don't want to be too intrusive during the ceremony. Also this would be great for portraits.
I also considered 50mm 1.2 but after reading some reviews it appears to be too soft for a lot of people.

- EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM + 5d markIII
I am thinking about new camera is mainly because of bad auto-focus on mk2. I had a lot of missed shots with it(mostly in low/bad light). Second reason is group mode support for Speedlite 600EX RT. I still have no clue why canon did not add this in the older camera models. And lastly better high ISO performance.

So what would you suggest?
PS besides the weddings sometimes I shoot concerts, astrophotography and lots of family pictures (usually kids running around).

PPS great site and forum :)

Thanks in advance.
